My wife and I spent a very pleasant week. with the Lighthouse Cottage our base for daily visits to nearby scenic sites. From the spacious living room we were always aware of the Atlantic Ocean. The drive to Antigonish provided many opportunities for spectacular photography. Your lovely furnished Cottage became our sanctuary after a busy day sight-seeing. Thanks for shareing your property.
Just came back from Antigonish, NS.
We had a fabulous vacation.
My husband and I stayed at this home with my sister and brother-in-law.
Two bedrooms. Two bathrooms. We never got in each other's way.
All basics provided.
As stated in description, 2 minute walk from lighthouse.
You do need to arrive at this home with all the staples you require including gas in your car.
The home is 30-40 minutes from town. No gas station or convenience store between house and town.
I recommend this home to anyone looking for a nice quiet vacation and anyone who likes to take rides and enjoy scenery.
Loved Nova Scotia!
We had a relaxing and enjoyable stay at the cottage. Not being familiar with the area, it was more remote than expected. We were glad to have taken some groceries with us for our first day.
The view from the deck is amazing and peaceful. We bundled up and sat there as much as possible though it was extremely windy and chilly.
We enjoyed the Cape Breton area and the town of Antigonish, which was a good30-40 minute drive.
Would love kayak info mentioned in review above as that was something we searched for.
Would love to return one day.
The cottage was the perfect setting to enjoy the few days with my daughter before her move in day to St. FX. The 30 minute drive to the University is beautiful! The cottage itself is peaceful, clean and beautifully decorated. The view was unbeatable! So very happy we stayed :)
This was a lovely house with a great feel to it. Rhona and her mother went out of their way to help us find kayaks to rent and to recommend great day trips. There are many beautiful little coves around Cape George, but the best day was (on Rhona's recommendation), a drive to Cape Breton Island to have lunch and listen to live Celtic music at the Celtic Music Interpretive Center in Judique and then an afternoon at the lovely beach just up the road in Port Hood. The best part was sitting on the deck at night and looking up at the most magnificent spectacle of stars. We even saw a bunch of meteors. The location is quite remote (20-25 minutes from the town of Antogonish), but that is partly what makes it so wonderful! A fabulous, peaceful place.
This was our first of hopefully many trips to Nova Scotia’s Northumberland Shore. Our party consisted of one adult and one teenager. Our cottage was spacious, spotlessly clean, and beautifully decorated. The main living space was a good size, with comfortable seating, and floor-to-ceiling windows with gorgeous views complete with stunning sunrises and sunsets. The bedrooms were a good size, well furnished and with extremely comfortable beds. The kitchen was easy to work in and well-stocked with everything you would need for a holiday stay.
This was the perfect place to spend Thanksgiving. The weather was amazing, and we loved walking from the cottage up to the lighthouse in the mornings and before sunset. The location made it convenient to head to Cape Breton Island, the Northumberland Shore, and Antigonish. The fall colors were spectacular. At the end of a busy day, we sat on the front porch or in the living room enjoying the fire in the lovely stone fireplace, and from either location could watch another gorgeous sunset over St. George's Bay.
The owners were incredibly responsive to any questions or requests, giving very good suggestions. A delight to work with, and always went the extra mile. Lovely hosts, even though not local.
We will definitely be back. This place and its owners did not disappoint. Thank you Nigel and Rhona!
